Datavideo?s VP-597 is a 2-input, 6-output SDI distribution amplifier with unlocked A/B input switching control. It supports 3G/HD/SD-SDI video, embedded audio, and re-clocking for long distance cable runs. Two source inputs can be switched by an A/B panel switch or through GPI remote control interface.

A typical application for VP-597 would be to feed six monitors, all in separate locations, with a program output, then use a remote or local switch to display a second source such as a logo, black screen or a test pattern. You could even use color bars as a second source to make sure all the monitors look good. Input sources can be selected using a toggle switch or GPI closure.

VP-597 comes complete with a locking power supply connector, AC/DC power supply and a CD that includes PC software for control via the VP-597's mini USB port. The software allows you to select input sources and GPI modes (pulse or level), update to the current firmware revision, and restore the factory defaults.
